QuickDip …. Make Your Own Igniters
14 Gram Bottles of QuickDip sell for $22.50 each.
28 Gram bottles of QuickBurst QuickDip sell for $37.50 each.
New and Improved!
QuickDip pyrogen, comes in a new resealable plastic bottle with a lid liner which is resistant to acetone this will give you more shelf time. Either of the kits will make a boatload of igniters. All you do is thin the mix with acetone (available at most Home Improvement/Hardware) stores to the consistency of thick maple syrup and dip away. I suggest dipping then allowing the mix to harden a few seconds, then re-dipping until you get the desired thickness. Each bottle comes with complete instructions and QuickDip can be re-thinned as many times as necessary. Now you can make your own High Power Igniters, and make them perform as you need. We are also offering a 14 Gram Kit soon, very soon. When making thin starters it never hurts to paint the finished igniter with fingernail polish. This will make them much more robust.
A note on Acetone: Use new, fresh 100% Acetone and fingernail polish remover will not work, it must be Acetone.
Long Term Storage:
The solvent used in QuickDip is acetone and acetone evaporates rapidly. If your QuickDip dries out during storage you can always reconstitute it by thinning with acetone. Try storing your bottle of QuickDip in a Mason jar. The Mason jars seal very well and will help preserve the product.
QuickDip will not work as an e-match dip for commercial e-match blanks. If you have e-match blanks and you need to dip them be sure to use the H-3 Compound.

Review of Improved QuickDip by Quickburst – Dave Snyder 11/11/2021
The kit comes well packaged, and the instructions are very clear. If you’ve used the original QuickDip, the entire process will be very familiar. In the step where the user is to open the bag and pour in the oxidizer, I would recommend that the “zip-lock” portion of the bag be cut-off instead. This makes it easier to pour the contents into the jar.
Dipping igniters is as easy as ever, especially if you’ve used the original QuickDip. The slurry is thinned to the proper consistency with acetone, and the bridge wire heater is simply inserted into the slurry and pulled out and left to dry. I did use some nail polish to give the hardened pyrogen a little more protection when handling.
When comparing the performance of the improved version of Quickdip to the original. The improved version seems to burn hotter, brighter, more consistent, and a little longer when comparing two similarly sized test subjects. I had no problem lighting an AP based research H motor with the improved dip. I was having issues with the old dip cracking after dipping and not igniting. This was after re-constituting the mix several times over a couple years. I understand that the new mix re-constitutes much better. Although I have not had the chance to test this.
Overall, I am very pleased with the improved version of QuickDip and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to get a rocket motor lit.
